The Endowment Fund

Long-Term, Stable Funding for Legal Aid

ENDOW NOW!

Endowing Your Annual Gift and More for Legal Aid

Many sources of funding for legal aid, including federal funding and foundation support, can be unpredictable and have never been sufficient to meet the legal needs of Oregon’s poor. The Campaign for Equal Justice has long asserted that low-income Oregonians should be entitled to the full spectrum of legal services available to individuals who can pay for services and that Oregon’s legal aid programs are in the best position to assess the legal needs of the poor through community based priority setting. The Endowment will provide a long term stable source of funding for Oregon’s legal aid programs, by directing annual distributions to legal aid.


Some Quick and Easy Ways to Endow Your Gift

Simply fill out a new beneficiary designation form for your traditional IRA or other retirement plan. Pick a percentage and add a new beneficiary: CAMPAIGN FOR EQUAL JUSTICE ENDOWMENT FUND, 620 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 1225, Portland, OR 97204; EIN 93-1193792. It’s a smart way to assure equal justice for years to come—and minimize income and estate tax—in one easy step. We all know the IRS (and the Department of Revenue) take a piece of every dollar withdrawn from a traditional IRA for income tax; but charities like CEJ do not pay income tax, so every dollar distributed from your IRA to CEJ is a full dollar spent on justice.

Or add CEJ as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy. Or prepare or amend a revocable living trust agreement, or sign a new will or codicil, adding a specific gift for CEJ. Let us know if you’d like information about other ways to help, like making a gift of stock or property, or creating a charitable remainder or lead trust.
